The Price of Thomas Scott

An incredible exploration of the social principles that dominated western societies in the early 20th century, The Price of Thomas Scott is an absorbing watch that is relevant to the modern world in its own unique way.

Why Watch The Price of Thomas Scott

Elizabeth Baker’s The Price of Thomas Scott offers a peek into the repressive and conservative practices that pervaded the early 20th century. The author drew heavily from her own experiences to write this play, for she too was born in a similar traditional household. Like the main character, Thomas Scott, many considered artistic expressions like dance to be devilish and vulgar. The play itself does not sharply take a side; it presents a scenario and lets the audience draw their own conclusions. The play was produced only once before in 1913 at the Theatre in Manchester.

Directed by Jonathan Bank and starring Donald Corren, Andrew Fallaize, and Emma Geer, this is one of the best revivals Off Broadway this season.

The Story

The spirited and independent Annie Scott is forced to stay in her town and trim hats in her father’s shop. Although she aims to study fashion in Paris, her father Thomas Scott is vehemently opposed to the idea. He hopes to sell his failing family business to anyone willing to pay for it. When a wealthy businessman finally offers to pay a substantial price for the business, Thomas Scott is faced with a difficult decision. If the businessman acquires the property, it will be morphed into a dance hall, and Scott firmly believes that all forms of dance are immoral and sinful. The show urges audiences to think about these ideas of chastity and prejudice, and compare it to the world we live in today.
